Pavel Muller: For me this camera seems to have everything I would want except the prime lens. I do need to have a zoom the way I photograph. My preference would be for a compact 24-200f/4-f/5.6 or thereabouts. I sometimes photograph hard to access distant details and I love the perspective on a 24mm lens and wider...

For portraiture teleconverter would help. There is Fuji TCL-X100 1.4x teleconverter, does it work with this new model? Of course 2X would be even better.

Does this mean we will finally get full frame compact cameras?

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (888 comments in total)

I think when electronic get better it just better than optical :-) Space and weight will matter a lot. But IQ is not there yet.
More important matter was, when I tried Fuji hybrid, electronic looked totally different from optical, different colours and contrast. It looked like processed JPEG. Weird..

Now is it possible to install OSX?

Impressive. I though think I will continue using my old clumsy Samyang 24 mm shift lens until I find a good deal for this. May take a while.

In reply to:

obsolescence: It would be interesting to see a comparison of T-S lens-shifted vs. software-corrected images -- this lens vs. Nikon 14-24mm.

Point is, you can place horizon anywhere you like by allowing camera NOT to be level, and correct the falling lines in post. Of course you cannot be quite sure what you have in image area as correction crops image a lot (or you have to fake missing pixels). It is really a boon to be able to see final composition using a PC lens, you don't have to guess what final corrected crop is.

I do not get these wide angle add ons... as built in panoramic mode is so good.
Now telephoto is another thing, now and then portraiture needs longer focal length.

In reply to:

saiko: Adobe Photoshop needs a competitor like Blackmagic Fusion or DaVinci Resolve .... top notch software for free for most basics requirements. If you need specialized production feature you pay for it.

Maybe then Adobe will bring back perpetual licenses again.

Affinity..

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (424 comments in total)

Are those telephoto and wide-angle adapters worth anything? Is zoom optically (much) better? I do not need zoom per se, but WA and portrait tele have their uses.

Now if Epson would make also 24" model compact and not too expensive.

Elite83: No note of color depth? If it's not 10-bit then it's not of much use.

8-bit would be a lot of use. 7-bit, that would be a problem.

This is meant to be connected to MBP, not to replace it.

MBP needs a USB-hub anyway, so it can be integrated there. I think they are available already.

In reply to:

HRC2016: I condone photography done where a photographer did not have permission from the property owner.

Photographers who break the law are criminals, and no "code of conduct" gets them off the hook. They are not much different from those who go off-trail or off-road to get a unique angle.

People who photograph someone's property without permission are not much different from those who use another's photograph without permission. As photographers we should respect everyone's rights. Not just when it's convenient.
Trespassers cause many problems, including more fences and signs that detract from the landscape.

I don't know how much of what I've stated applies to these photos/photographer as I'm not giving this genre my attention other than to show it is not all positive.

Neither in Finland... In the land of freedom things may be more restricted.

In reply to:

Andrei C: Smartphones - it's a smart phone not a professional photo/video camera. :))
Are you even realizing that you are comparing phones to dedicated photography cameras?

They added the option of a small digital camera and every photograph is throwing hate on phones.
What is the hate about ? That every person can take a photo now and you are not the only one ? This is actually a good thing for photography! Every person now has a mobile phone and all of them can the a picture, so now it's a bigger chance that people will fall in love with photography.

I guess the problem here is more of frustration. That you no longer present a interest to anyone with your big camera hanging at you're neck. That you are not the only one able to take pictures. Now anyone can just take their phone from their pocket and snap a picture and be quite pleased with it. That must be frustrating...

frustration is that it is so easy to use iPhone instead of ff Nikon but... IQ just does not deliver

sh10453: Thanks for the article, Jackie, but ...
Hard to believe that you'd miss the big names, the major competitors!

- Corel Paintshop Pro (I believe it's even older than Adobe Photoshop, and has been its main competitor for the whole life of Photoshop)
- On-One
- Phase One (Capture)
- ACDSee
- Zoner Photo Studio (ver. 18 is quite powerful)
- Paint.Net (Free) for lighter editing chores, but tons of free and powerful plugins

These are just a few examples of well-established programs.

Some of your entries here are hardly known to most people, or even heard of.

PS 1.0 was released February 1990.
